Subject: Module::Install won't run on perl 5.8.6
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 627b
I used Module::Install to create a Makefile.PL file so that I can ensure that all needed modules are installed when I make a 'distribution' of my CGI script. When I run `perl Makefile.PL` I get the follow error message and the resulting Makefile is not written. include inc/Module/Install/ Writing META.yml include inc/Module/Install/ include inc/Module/Install/ include inc/Module/Install/ ERROR: perl: Version 5.008006 is installed, but we need version >= 5.008008 at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Module/Install/ line 158. Local machine information: OS: Mac OS X 10.4.9 perl: 5.8.6
